  1. Turn off the computer and all attached devices.
  2. Unplug the power cord and remove the cover. See Cover removal.

  7. Due to cable length limitations, both drive trays must slide outward together.
    Slide both drive trays out far enough to access the system board. This might
    require disconnecting cables that are connected to the drives and to the system board.
    Note where the cables are connected before disconnecting them.
